    David West is a Celtic!!!

    It's now official!!!

    David West is close to a three-year sign-and-trade deal just under $30 million with the Celtics.

    Boston will send Jermaine O'Neal and another player in exchange for West. O'Neal will presumably be flipped by the Hornets to another team.

    While West found the market less robust than he was expecting, he will take less money to play for a contender.

    Okay, I now understand why Danny ainge had a heart attack and he is giving me one too. I don't know if this good or not, we now have no true center, but I have to say one thing the man is the gutsiest GM in the league. I mean seriously. Simmons once wrote a piece about tentative Gm's he called the NBA (No balls association.) Danny is certainly not in the category. 

    We know have alot of damn good power forwards and no centers. Not sure if he is doing like some have suggested and getting ready to flip another trade or, just going deep with talented players. Question does Danny not need sleep?

    There has to be another move in here.  So far I like it.

    Ditto.  I can't see DA doing this trade either unless it gets him a piece he needs for another trade.

    LOVE IT ~!

    IN DANNY WE TRUST !

    David West is a serious upgrade over Big Baby OR J'ON

    4 ? 5 ? WHO CARES ?

    David West and Brandon Bass give the Celtics 2 talented forwards. Way better than Ryan Gomes, both of these guys...

    CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE 15 MAN ROSTER ON OPENING NIGHT...

    NO IDEA WHAT DANNY IS THINKING BUT I LIKE HIS AGGRESSIVENESS

    it's not a done deal. It's close and it would be great but it's not done yet. Jermaine wants nothing to do with the Hornets, so this could be an impediment. We'll see...

    [QUOTE]Could this be part of another deal to land CP3. We have Green signed and have that number 1 pick from the clip. Could the West trade put CP3 in a comfort zone to want to come here. Rondo has a better chance to draw people to the big easy than Lamar Odom. Hmmmmm........

    Fakers would never give up Gasol and Odom if they're not getting CP3.

    West is the model of consistency, see stats on basketball-reference.com.  Like it.  Probably need one additional banger for defense and minutes.  But Bass I'm sure has to be a better defensive optionthan Baby?   Thoughts?

    Danny should go after Lopes. I said it before...swap Perk with Lopes.
    Now its time to go after him.

    i think i read a quote that CP3 would be interested in playing with David West, and stated there was a better chance for him to sihn extension if west was on the team..

    Has West passed the physical? How will West react to 18-24 minutes a night? He seems kind of redundant to Green. Both too small to spell KG at PF and both too slow to spell PP at SF. Neither one impresses on D. Seems like a lot of money for a 31 yr old coming off of ACL to seemingly back up better players

    I'm sure NJ will just hand us their 2nd best player. You'd have to move Rondo to get someone like him and they already have Deron so..yeah..a total pipe dream is what that is.

    This has to come into focus soon.  All these forwards cannot be the solution. DH isn't coming so who is?  The present roster will never hold up between now and Christmas Day.

    West wouldnt get 18 to 24 a night.  Davis played 30 minutes a night last year and played a lot of center.  West gets those minutes.

    They want KG and PP to play many less minutes. West would be an answer.
